A small business economic report from a unique CEO

Recently I had the privilege of interviewing Paul Sarvadi, founder and CEO of Insperity, on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, about his thoughts on the current state of the U.S. economy. Paul is uniquely qualified as an expert on this topic because he runs his publicly traded company with a small business mentality, plus all of his customers are small business leaders in their industry and markets.

Some of the things Paul said during our visit include where we are in the recovery, his conviction that small businesses will lead the economy out of recession, and his concerns for government policies hurting our recovery progress, plus other words of wisdom. Be sure to take a few minutes to listen to this interview, and of course, leave your own thoughts. Listen Live! Download, Too!

Three categories of small businesses

There are three types of small businesses operating in the recession of 2009, according to Jay Mincks, EVP of Sales and Marketing for Insperity.

- One group is having a really difficult time and may not make it.
- The second group is probably going to just survive the recession
- The last group will actually thrive and grow during the current downturn

So why does Jay think that identifying this business stratification is important? Two reasons:

1. To remind you that your small business – and mine - fits into one of these categories. I know which group I want to be in, how about you?

2. When we’re looking for small business prospects to sell to, the vast majority of small business prospects are either hanging in there or are doing okay. That’s a lot of prospects we can sell to - right now.

Recently, Jay Mincks (Insperity.com)joined me on my small business radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, and we talked about this topic and his thoughts on surviving and thriving in a recession. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from and get motivated by this corporate leader. And, of course, be sure to leave your thoughts.
